No matter how happy you are with how your year went in 2015, there is no possible way that you had a better year than Alicia Vikander. I think she was in about 340 movies last year. There’s no way an actor can plan something like that, they have no control over when the movies they film are released, it’s pure luck to have a year that packed. The number of films she was in was notable enough, but Alicia Vikander also cleaned up this 2016 awards season. Nominations just flying all over the place! And she has looked damn good while she takes over Hollywood. I’m not one to obsess over what women wear on the red carpet, because fashion isn’t something I really care about. But even I have to admit that Alicia has looked amazing everywhere from the small awards luncheons to the Oscars, where she won the other night. I’m not even going to touch on them all, just the highlights. Let’s start at one of the first ceremonies…
Alicia was nominated twice this night: Best Supporting Actress for Ex Machina and Best Actress for The Danish Girl. It’s Louis Vuitton, which she wore a lot due to her being one of the official faces of the brand. I think it’s beautiful in a clean, simple way. I know some people thought it looked a tad apron-y, but I don’t think it can be denied that she looks elegant.
She won this night, and looked KILLER. I love this dress. Love it. It might be my favorite thing that she wore all awards season. This was also my favorite hairdo on her, and she has one of the most infuriatingly perfect faces ever. Is her skin for real? I use like 40 different creams and masks, and mine will never look that good.
Alicia won the SAG Award too, and apparently the laws of physics were suspended for the evening, because ordinarily that many sequins on a dress would catch so much light that it would distort whoever wore it. The light knows. It loves Alicia, too.
This dress apparently weighed 35 pounds. Which Alicia said to an interviewer while smiling, so she’s much tougher than me. If I heard that a dress I might wear weighed that much it would have been an instant pass. (Actually I take that back. Who am I kidding, if I had the opportunity to go to one of these things I’d put on anything that anyone wanted to give me.) I’m impressed that it’s leather and yet still looks formal.
Academy Award winner Alicia Vikander is something we’re all going to see in the trailer of any movie she’s in from now on because SHE WON THE BEST SUPPORTING ACTRESS OSCAR. She deserves it, she was phenomenal in The Danish Girl. And what a way to finish off the incredible year she’s had. As soon as she stepped onto the red carpet, again in Louis Vuitton, the Beauty and the Beast comparisons started cropping up. Alicia even admitted herself that her look had kind of a Belle vibe. If anyone in the world is a Disney princess come to life it’s Alicia Vikander, so there’s no reason why she shouldn’t look like one on one of the most important nights of her life. Even her after party dress slayed. As a fellow member of the Small Boob Club, I do love deep v necklines. Don’t have an appropriate bra? It doesn’t matter, because they’re not going anywhere. They generally don’t move, ever.
Hopefully a bit of a break is on the horizon, I know I’d certainly need one after such a whirlwind year. Alicia completely owned this awards season, so much so that I think “Vikandering” should be a new word, used when someone is completely dominating at something. I’m officially indicting her into the annals of women we keep tabs on at That’s Normal. Keep on Vikandering, Alicia, we love you!
